Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA), which has been
denying its involvement in the May 28 Jnaneswari Express
disaster, today announced withdrawal from tomorrow of its
month-long blockade in the Junglemahal.
The tribal body was withdrawing its blockade as it was

Mahato told agency over phone.
Buses, trucks and trekkers had stopped plying in the PCPA
strongholds of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts
collectively know as Junglemahal after the blockade was
enforced to demand the production in court of arrested PCPA
supporters and withdrawal of the anti-Maoist operations.
